For Payroll, HR, Pensions
...and more!


Free while you're under
your first 10 people.

Then £0.99/mth per person.
(£9.90 minimum)

Can I really use this for free?  Most people start out only needing FREE or FREE+ so you'll likely pay nothing! (...we won't even ask for your card number)

Is the Tax Filing optional?  Yes, Tax Filing is optional. You won't need Tax Filing for contractors, advisors, external accountants, dormant employees, and unpaid interns, etc.

How do I stay on FREE+?  Each month we auto-detect which of your people actually use Tax Filing. If you're still under your first 10 people, then you pay nothing (you're on FREE+).

How do I move to PRO?  Once you add your 10th person, the FREE+ plan expires. From then on, you're billed £0.99, but only for the people who actually use Tax Filing for that month (you're now on PRO).

What's the PRO minimum?  PRO has a £9.90 minimum per month, but only if at least one of your people actually uses Tax Filing in that month. If not, then that month's free.

Any hidden costs?  There's no hidden or setup costs. All prices are +VAT @20% (reverse charge).
